Hello, I am using a different computer to post this thread. I use Windows XP
Anyways, yesterday, a pop-up appeared saying "We Hope You Enjoyed Our Content" after days of what I thought to be ad-ware. After the pop-up, the screen turned to something saying "Windows has detected spyware. Click here to download spyware protection" or something around that. I downloaded SpyBot and found out that I got many viruses and trojans including:
-WebHance
-SpyWareKnight
-Perfect Keylogger
-AdwareFinder
-Zlob virus
-SpyWare Sheriff
-GAIN.gator

And many more. I want to remove all of these viruses from my computer but I don't want to have to reboot it because I have many files I need to keep. How can I remove them?

Oh ya, task manager has been disabled

Hello and welcome first run this

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

I quickly reviewed this and saw that if it asks me to restart, I should. What if whenever I do restart it or shut it down, it comes up with an screen that says I have been infected with spyware? Should I continue using the button on the computer or wait?

What do I do after the task manager starts to work? (I didn't get to do the task manager because there my brother won't let me use the computer


EDIT:Is there any way for me take it out through safe mode? If not, can I use the method above with safe mode? Because my internet isn't working with safe mode

Yes you can tho that tool is more powreful in normal,but run it anyway it won't hurt anything.
Here's a tool the is more powerful in my opinion in safe mode. So if you can run this too and the file cleaner.


Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining
.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opers browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program
.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
Click Close to exit the program.

Ok, I downloaded the superantispyware, my brother just did a full scan and we came up with all the viruses. When some things are quarantined, and then you press "Remove" does it delete the viruses or does it bring it back into the computer?

Pressing remove is the correct move. It will put the malware into quarantine. Once there the malware can no longer harm your PC.

After the scan, it was put into the quarantine and then I went into the quarantine and selected everything in it, then I pressed "remove". Does that mean the virus is gone for good, or still on my computer?

Also, when spybot was scanning before, it showed files say Zlob.(insert some text here).
Would SuperAntiSpyware remove it?

What was quarantined is gone.
OK part of the problem is possibly a part of Spybot. The teatimer application sometimes interferes with malware removal.
It may be what pebented MBAM earlier. Either turn it off compltely for these scan or Temporarily disable TeaTimer. It;s a good tool and helps prevent things from taking over but right now I feel it's hindering.

You can disable TeaTimer 2 ways

To disable TeaTimer and remove its startup entry:
Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced Mode > Tools > Resident
Uncheck (if checked) the following:
Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of over-all system settings) Active.

To temporarally close TeaTimer and restart it later:
Right click Spybot's TeaTimer System Tray Icon > click Exit Spybot-S&D Resident.
TeaTimer closes.

Restart TeaTimer:(after Fix)
Using Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy.
Double click TeaTimer.exe to start it.

Reboot is NOT necessary for the change to take effect.

http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=2827


After you've done that let's run S!Ri's SmitfraudFix for the Zlob
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Sorry for the double post but the virus is back. The background is back, all of it, and also there is a folder called aa from before that won't get deleted. How can I stop all of this?
